Another Winning Quilt Made by a Friend

I am continuing to share photos and idea, each day this month, from Fiber Arts Fiesta which was held in Albuquerque May 23-25.

This is Suns and Moons, made by another talented friend/Long Armer, Lynne Horpedahl.

It placed third in the category Large Innovative Pieced and/or Appliqu├ęd quilt.  I love the colors and the fabulous quilting.

Another of Lynne's quilts in the show also won a third place ribbon, in the Medium Art quilt category for How Does My Garden Grow?

Here's a closer look at the embellishment and quilting. 


How My Garden Grows by Lynn Horpedahl - DetailButtons seem to be growing in popularity as an embellishment ... I wonder if its a regional thing or a national trend?

Have you noticed more buttons on quilts?

Have you added more buttons to your quilts?

Suns and Moons was one of my very favorite quilts at the show! The color placement is fantastic and the quilting is over the top! I came back to stare at this one often! :)

I noticed a lot of buttons on quilts too! I have never put buttons on my quilts but I have to admit it added a very nice touch to the quilts at the show.

These are both beautiful quilts and the quilting is just wonderful. I spent quite some time a the show looking at the "How Does My Garden Grow" and then came back later and looked at it some more. I did love all the buttons. I have not done much embellishing on quilts I have made but maybe I should as it sure is a nice addition.

I see buttons on new quilt patterns and as embellishments for tote bags, cosmetic bags, lunch bags. With a nice button collection, I enjoy using buttons to brighten up a project but not quilts that are going to be used, especially by children. Wall hangings are my favorite thing on which to go crazy with buttons.

Those are two great quilts, Sophie. I love Lynn's use of buttons. Thanks for sharing.
